Farm tax credit plan welcome

A proposal to ease the state tax burden on farmers is being welcomed in Door and Kewaunee counties.  Assembly Republicans have introduced some changes to Democratic Governor Tony Evers $8.5-million plan to aid farmers, which would include boosting agriculture exports as well as tax breaks.  The GOP proposal would give farmers a $7500 property tax break and some reductions in income taxes.  Rich Olson, a co-owner of Olson Family Dairy Farm near Sturgeon Bay, says any tax aid and product marketing efforts are welcome and needed.


Assembly Republicans are not saying how much the farm tax breaks would cost the state or how they would be funded.
